Dried Cherry and Cranberry Sauce

Cranberries and cherries offer a wide range of health benefits and adding dried sour cherries to this chunky cranberry sauce makes it appealingly sweet and tart.

·        1 ½ cups cranberry juice cocktail

·        1 cup water

·        ¾ to 1 cup light brown sugar (Depending on how tart you like your sauce).   

·        ¼ tsp cinnamon

·        6 ounces dried cherries

·        1 (12 ounce) package fresh cranberries

Place the cranberries in a colander and rinse them. Pick out and discard any damaged or bruised cranberries.

Stir the cranberry juice cocktail, water, brown sugar, cinnamon and cherries together in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Once the mixture is boiling, reduce heat to medium and cook 2 minutes. Add the cranberries; continue cooking, stirring occasionally about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and chill in refrigerator 8 hours to overnight.

Can refrigerate 1 week.
